Rainin’ J’s episode 15: Perfection, Production, And don’t throw stones at the throne

Really all you need to know about today’s show is that it includes two wrestling references and two horrible impressions. But if that’s not enough to entice you to listen, then maybe Jay and I enjoying the fact that the Celtics rotation is finally starting to take shape (thanks to health and a couple of [...]

4 Up, 4 Down: The Toronto Raptors

4 Up, 4 Down: The Toronto Raptors

The Celtics had a lot of opportunities to win last night’s game, but in the end, they were outclassed by an soon-to-be All Star (and soon-to-be max contract player, probably) in DeMar DeRozan. There shouldn’t be any shame in losing to the second seed in the conference, but, of course, there was a lot of [...]

Recap: DeMar DeRozan sends Celtics to another frustrating loss

The Toronto Raptors are hosting this year’s All Star Game in a few weeks, but probably-soon-to-be-All Star DeMar DeRozan got a jump on the festivities, leading Toronto to a 6 point win over the Celtics thanks to a 34 point, 6 assist performance. The Celtics and Raptors traded a bunch of early baskets before the [...]

4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

There was a lot to love and a lot to hate in last night’s tough OT loss to Dallas. The Celtics scored a lot, but gave up a lot of points… they came back from a huge hole, but they got into that hole in the first place. And then, of course, there was a [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

We’re back this week to talk about the Celtics continued ups and downs… especially those of Kelly Olynyk who can either be really, really good, or really, really bad. Still, it seems like he’s part of a much more solid rotation, and we discuss how health is allowing Brad Stevens to finally get the guys [...]

Recap: Olynyk, Smart lead Celtics rout of Suns

Kelly Olynyk looked so comfortable and got so hot, he must’ve thought he was back at Gonzaga, or playing with the Canadian National Team. The lanky long-hair (no man bun tonight) single-handedly broke open a competitive contest by racking up 15 second-quarter points, including 13 straight Celtics points in a stretch of 2:14. Boston topped [...]

I called Kelly Olynyk “borderline untouchable”… and here’s why

I called Kelly Olynyk “borderline untouchable”… and here’s why

Aside from a stretch of play that caused me to launch into a frustrated podcast rant, Kelly Olynyk has had a pretty good month of December. We were treated to more great play last night, despite him being limited by foul trouble. Last night, while lauding his play on Twitter, I took it a step further [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Kelly and Jae play Santa Claus

Your Morning Dump… Where Kelly and Jae play Santa Claus

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Jae Crowder posted his third consecutive double-double in the victory, scoring 19 points while pulling down 12 rebounds, while Kelly Olynyk led Boston with 20 points. [...]

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Ferocious isn’t an adjective often associated with Kelly Olynk. But the quiet Canadian played that way tonight, scoring a team high 20 points (7-10 FG, 9 reb) including two buckets late that sealed the Celtics 102-89 victory over Charlotte. The highlight of the night came in the 3rd quarter when Olynyk channeled his inner Kevin [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Scrap everything we said last week, because this past week saw the Celtics get progressively worse over their three games… all losses. Kelly Olynyk is frustrating… and we wonder what it will take to get him in the right place mentally (so does Brad Stevens, by the way). So is Avery Bradley (which might be [...]
